Tennessee football announced Thursday morning that it’s checkering Neyland Stadium for its week seven matchup against Texas A&M.

It’s the sixth Checker Neyland game in the stadium’s storied history. The Vols checkered Neyland Stadium in each of Josh Heupel’s first two seasons, losing to Ole Miss 31-26 in 2021 and defeating Florida 38-33 in 2022 in a rivalry victory that ended a five-game losing streak in the series.

Tennessee football is 2-3 in the five Checker Neyland games and are looking to even its record when it hosts Texas A&M at Neyland Stadium.
